The right to life or death of human beings should be in the patients, the doctor's diagnosis or restricted and controlled under the framework of law and morality?

The forthcoming euthanasia will make it more rather than less painful because it will put the emphasis on personal decision in a way which was blissfully alien to the whole problem of dying in former times. It will make death even more subjectively intolerable, for people will feel responsible for their own deaths and morally obligated to rid their relatives of their unwanted presence.

He wrote a letter to request the right of death from the president with the use of physical signals to communicate. 1 month later, he received a letter back. "I cannot give what you have requested because the president had no right to do that.” Finally, the doctor and his mother decided to stop treatment. He died in the next year.
